IRA graves daubed with fascist graffiti

Breaking News

Graffiti in support of fascist extremists Combat 18 has been daubed on republican monuments in a cemetery in west Belfast.
Vandals painted slogans in support of the hardline group in the republican plot at Milltown cemetery on Wednesday night.

Two monuments were yesterday afternoon still emblazoned with ‘C18’.

Sinn Fein Assembly member Paul Maskey said: “Overnight, racist and sectarian slogans, along with Combat 18 graffiti, were daubed on the republican plot in the cemetery. A considerable amount of damage has been done to the graves.”

One of the monuments commemorates Irish republicans who fought on the anti-fascist side in the Spanish civil war and the other those “who struggled and died for the establishment of a socialist republic by the Workers Party”.
